Trump is so out of touch with reality that he attacked a judge for an immigration decision who was actually a 15-year-old migrant from El Salvador.
This is the President Of The United States:
Trump criticizing " bad court decision" Reno V. Flores
"Judge Flores, whoever you may be, that decision is a disaster for our country"
You ignorant turd, Judge Flores is Jenny Lisette Flores, then an unaccompanied 15-year old girl from El Salvador.

As CNN’s Jim Acosta pointed out:
Trump “We’ve had some very bad court decisions. The Flores decision is a disaster, I have to tell you. Judge Flores, whoever you may be, that decision is a disaster for our country." As CNN has previously reported, Flores was a 15-year-old girl from El Salvador. via @maeganvaz

These aren’t Trump gaffes. They’re symptoms.
So far this week, Trump has falsely claimed that his father was born in Germany. Fred Trump was born in New York City. President Trump has also demanded an investigation into the “oranges” of the Mueller investigation, and now he is confusing a judge with a 15-year-old girl. Trump has always lived in his own fantasyland, but these statements this week show a basic lack of language and comprehension skills.
Trump is in decline, and if this is what Republicans are going to trot out at the top of their ticket in 2020, they are going to have a big problem.
